Singapore, 17th April 2018: Singapore Exchange listed YuuZoo Corporation Limited (“YuuZoo”SGX:AFC), together with its Singapore franchisees Singnet Solutions Pte Ltd (“SINGNET”) and Hub International Pte Ltd (“PUREGOOD”) launched YuuHalal for beta testing in Singapore at The Muslim World event at the Singapore Expo which was held last weekend.

The literal meaning of the Arabic word ‘Halal’ is “permissible”. It is used in reference to food and drinks that are permitted for Muslims under Islamic Law, as defined in the Quran. It lays down instructions specifying what food can be consumed, as well as, the method of preparation, addressing mostly meat items and animal tissue.
Halal lifestyle extends beyond Muslims. “Halal” is a way of life and a new lifestyle. It is about making healthier and socially responsible and ethical choices that extend beyond food intake.
As the Halal industry continues to expand beyond the food sector, there are many other industries that stand to benefit from this lifestyle shift. They include cosmetic and personal care, pharmaceutical and healthcare, tourism, fashion, even logistics, whereby the end-to-end supply chain are Halal-certified from the producers to the consumers.
YuuHalal will allow companies to showcase a wide range of businesses, products and services that cater to the global Islamic economy.
With nearly 1.8 billion Muslims, or close to two thirds of the global Muslim population in Asia, Asia’s Halal market has been mainly driven by India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Indonesia and China. The global halal market size was valued at USD 5.73 trillion in 2016 with a CAGR of 10.5% from 2017 to 2024.
“We are happy and proud to launch this very meaningful new venture with Singnet and Puregood. We believe YuuHalal can serve the Halal-lifestyle global community in new and exciting ways. We look forward to feedback from the users as comes to how they want to interact with each other on the platform.
